sandy, droughts, extreme chill. whether it's a cyclical thing where we'll turn this around or we're on a one-way path remains to be seen. >> we've seen extreme heat and cold and hurricanes sweeping through new york, which i experienced. it was dramatic when it happened. it caused a lot of damage. the critics against this say, look, this has gone on for centuries and millenniums. always freakish periods of weather. no different now. what do you say to that? >> i think you are better off looking -- >> i think lee goldberg may have frozen there it was so cold. i think he's iced up. you can't hear him. you can barely hear me. we got lee back. we thought you had frozen to death. no. you are frozen to death. unfortunately we have lost lee goldberg. sorry about that. president obama is making the fight against extreme weather part of his second term agenda. joining me now is editor and chief and an executive director of the sierra club. welcome to you both. when i last spoke to you about this, pretty fiery debate about it and you were opposed to any suggestion that there's any real scie
they wouldn't have done anything for sandy hook. they wouldn't have done anything for virginia tech. th it's not because the law failed. it's because people who are supposed to follow the law failed. i put this question for you again. what good are laws if people don't follow them? >> right. so you still maintain that we have to put more and more guns out there and america will be safer? >> i don't maintain anything. you can put words into my mouth all you want to. >> do you believe that? >> let me tell you something. >> do you believe more guns would lead to less gun crime? >> let me answer you. i am never, ever going to do anything that is going to somehow limit someone's ability to protect themselves. and speaking as someone who has had to deal with this, let me tell you something. i've been in the situation where i've had to protect myself. i have two children. i've had my life threatened. i've had my children's lives threatened. i went to the police. i went to security. do you know what -- you know what they told me? they said the best thing you can do is to get a firearm and to get a
who still aren't back in their homes three months after superstorm sandy. elaine quijano has more on that. >> reporter: we found anthony gambino inside a tent run by volunteers on staten island. the temperature outside was in the 20s. when you felt that cold, what went through your mind? >> find warmth and find it fast, and here it was. >> reporter: gambino has been sleeping here off and on since sandy severely damaged his home. the former mechanic lives on disability. this is how you sleep? >> fine, right here. folding chair here, got the t.v., got the heat, it's all good. >> reporter: one of the volunteers is tim chin. these are your supplies? >> these are the supplies that we have. >> reporter: he's given out 70 space heaters in the last couple of days. >> it's been getting really, really, really crazy with the heaters. people are freezing. they're cold, and we're trying our best to meet the needs of the community which is keeping them warm for the next few days as it gets colder and colder. >> next week, they're talking about getting warmer. but let's face it, we're going into
because it was in the senate version of sandy and it was not put in to the senate -- the house version of sandy. so no, we cannot -- we cannot move money we already have to address the needs and deficiencies that the arb has recommends we do. >> well, i would just echo the comments that have been made already by this committee and by you that this is action that we need to get moving on immediately because we still have people at risk around the world. we need to take the action that's going to ensure their security. so i would certainly urge the chairman and ranking member to move the committee to do everything we can to make this happen. and i want to go back to something that the secretary sni said because i asked about the cooperation between the department of defense and state. and what the situation was on the ground before the benghazi attack in terms of the placement of our military in the region. he talked about the unprecedented cooperation between state and defense in response to benghazi. but i wonder if you could talk about how we ensure that this is a standard way of doin
for an extraordinary daughter who came to the rockaways after sandy just helping people unannounced without fanfare, just getting down and helping people because she needed help after that tell storm so that was extraordinary public service and i want to also say, madam secretary, that you have been secretary of state, at an extraordinary time in the history of the united states of america and the world. you have managed to challenge in an extraordinary manner when you took the job america had a tarnished image abroads you have revived our brand and traveled over a million miles to the most challenging areas of the world and touched the lives of the most vulnerable. with your leadership of initiatives you have deepened our confidence that foreign aid can be responsibly spent. on behalf of a grateful nation and the people of the 5th congressional district i thank you for a job well done. the attacks on our mission at benghazi were a painful reminder that our diplomats are in harm's way and there are in some of the same and unstable and hostile environments as our military but they do not have the sa
to get that included in the senate version of the sandy supplemental that passed on december 28th. we were unable to get that included in the house version. this is not new money. first and foremost i would appreciate this committee working with the counterpart to give us this transfer authority. otherwise we are going to be behind the curve again. secondly i think it's important to change the laws about best value contracting versus lowest price technically qualified. by statute the state department guard contracts in dangerous places like libya and everywhere except iraq and afghanistan must be awarded using a lowest price technically acceptable selection process. we have requested a change in the legislation that would allow us to use some discretion to try to deal with the varieties of the local guard forces. we currently have it in afghanistan and pakistan, but it's going to expire. that's something else that i would ask the committee to look into. finally the point that the chairman made and you echoed, congressman, an authorization, i was on the armed serf service committee. it
republicans including the leaders for delaying the vote on hurricane sandy relief. we'll be right back. he's big up there. >>> we're back. and i said what a day. hillary clinton's strong performance today was a reminder to many that she would be a formidable candidate. who doesn't know that, in 2016. today we got hints about another one. vice president joe biden. he clearly wants to run. he seems to be laying the groundwork for a run which he was asked about on cnn yesterday. let's listen to what he said. >> is there any reason you wouldn't run? >> there's a whole lot of reasons why i wouldn't run. i haven't made that decision and i don't have to make that decision for awhile. >> so are you ready to run against hillary clinton in 2016? >> i haven't made that judgment and hillary hasn't made that judgment. but i can tell you what. everything that should be done over the next two years that i should be part of would have to be done whether i run or i don't run. if this administration is successful, whoever is running as a democrat is better positioned to win. if we're not successful, whoever
of last month's deadly rampage at sandy hook elementary school where a young man in body armor shot his way into the school and went from classroom to classroom, killing 26 first graders, teachers and administrators. in lafayette the new handles will replace the current type on some 200 doors that now lock only from the outside using a key. the cost of the change is about $60,000. parents we talked with seem to think it was a common sense approach to beefing up security on campuses that are typically wide open. >> i guess it makes sense if it is for the kids safety. it seems like dollars well spent. >> reporter: lafayette isn't the only school district moving to beef up security. down the road they are looking at new locks that can be locked from the inside. mccornelin martinez they adopted a new policy that they remain locked during the school day. >>> more are to come here tonight. is still ahead, manti te'o talks exclusively with abc's katy couric why he lied about his fake dead girlfriend. >>> 18 years since the 49ers won the super bowl. as for a repeat the team says they are taking

to put it into the senate version of the sandy supplemental. it did not get into the house side. we're still looking for the house to act. with respect to mali, senator, there was a country that made progress on its democracy. unfortunately, it suffered a military coop, some groups as well as other groups had been in the employ of gadhafi. with his fall, they came out of libya bringing huge amount of weapons from the enormous stores of weapons that gadhafi and others. at the same time, there was a move by the al qaeda and maghreb and we've been working to upgrade security around northern mali. algeria is the only one with any real ability to do that. most of these countries don't have the capacity to do that. we are now trying to help put together an african force from ecowa so african soldiers will be in the front of this fight. the malians asked the french to come in. france is one of our oldest allies. we are trying to provide support to them. but this is going to be a very serious, ongoing threat because if you look at the size of northern mali, if you look at the topography, it
. the senate was good enough to put it into the senate version of the sandy supplemental. it did not get into the house side. so we're still looking for the house to act. with respect to mali, senator, there was a country that had been making progress on its deepak civil unfortunately it suffered a military coup by low-rank military officers which threw it into a state of instability. with the taurigs and as you know some gripes were in the employ of qaddafi. he used them as mercenaris. with his fall they came out of libya bringing huge amounts of weapons from enormous stores of weapons that qaddafi had that insurgents liberated as well as others. they came into northern mali. at the same time there was a move by al qaeda in the maghreb to establish a base in northern mali. we have been working to try to upgrade security around northern mali among a number of the countries. algeria is the only one with any real ability to do that. most of these countries don't have the capacity to do that. we are now trying to help put together an african force ecowas so african soldiers will be in front
responders who were there for hurricane sandy and it featured them along with some models wearing some new york collection items. now the magazine said when the storm hit, the city's bravest and finest punched back. now with the area on the mend we paid them a visit, dressed in the best of new york collections. the photos shot by annie liebowitz. what do you think about these photos? donnie, you're an image guy. >> why not? why is it okay to take shots because of football stars and not our heroes? >> some think it's vulgar. >> why is it vulgar? we're celebrating them. >> some people thought they weren't celebrating them. >> using them as a marketing tool to sell these fashion items. >> some people are still suffering the devastation of sandy. when you look at the photographs it's like pay more attention to us. >> should they not go on talk shows? these are heroes. why can't we celebrate them? >> while so many people are still trying to recover, they've lost their homes and all their belongings, do they want to see the marketing of high-fashion items next to these first responders? >> by th
it was in the senate version of sandy it was not put into the house version house -- house version of sandy. >> i would recommend this action we need to get moving on immediately. because we still have people at risk of around the world. we need to take the action that will ensure their security. i would urge the chairman and the ranking member to move the committee to do everything we can to make this happen. i want to go back to something said at a hearing on december 20. i asked about the cooperation between the department of defense and state. what the situation was on the ground before the benghazi in terms of the placement of our military in the region, he talked about the unprecedented cooperation between state and defense in response to benghazi. i wonder if you could talk about how we ensure this is a standard way of doing business and that we are acting in cooperation when looking at the threats facing us, particularly as we look at what is happening in north africa. >> that is a really important and timely question. our cooperation around this crisis was exemplary. the president called the s
for delaying the vote on hurricane sandy relief. we'll be right back. he's big up there. while going shoeless and metal-free in seconds. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle...and go. you can even take a full-size or above, and still pay the mid-size price. now this...will work. [ male announcer ] just like you, business pro. just like you. go national. go like a pro. some brokerage firms are. but way too many aren't. some of the ones that push mutual funds with their names on them -- aren't. why? because selling their funds makes them more money. which makes you wonder -- isn't that a conflict? am i in the best fund for me, or them? search "proprietary mutual funds". yikes, it's best for them. then go to e-trade. we've got over 8,000 mutual funds and not one of them has our name on it. why? because that's not the business we're in. we're in the business of finding the right investments for you. e-trade. less for us. more for you. >>> we're back. and i said what a day. hillary clinton's strong performance today was a reminder to many that sh
or hurricane sandy? >> i mean, shame on him is what i say. because more than anything what he said is absolutely right in the sense there's disproportionate effects of gun violence in inner cities and across the border. if you want to go into communities that recognize the importance of having some sort of gun violence prevention, tough talk to those constituencies. otherwise, you're basically working out of -- without knowing exactly the repercussions that's happening in these communities. but let's talk a little bit about what's happening along the border, and the republican party's need and want to expand with the latino community as a voting bloc. along the border close to nine out of ten latinos regardless if they're republican or democrat believe we should have some sort of gun control legislation and that we need it quickly. why? because they're suffering the repercussions of right now anybody walking into -- walking in, buying a gun, not necessarily from a dealer but from a pift owner, and having no repercussions or no trail of where that gun went to. it's disgraceful that
that none of the changes would have done a darn thing about aurora, colorado or sandy hook, that's he demeaning, to suggest to americans we're going to take away your liberties and further infringe on your ability to own a particular type of gun and we know that it's not going to change the murders of americans that happen. >> megyn: i think that tone he struck, don't patronize your opposition because they seem to have heart felt beliefs on this issue. obama's been criticized for not getting that. when we went it break we played the sound bite of him saying the only reason you're seeing the long lines for the gun stores right now, because people are trying to gin up their own ratings or their own profits. i mean, president clinton, i presume, is not trying to do that. there are people who really genuinely believe this is an infringement on their constitutional rights and does the left risk alienate that, not just the left, but gun control people, by not acknowledging that's a real heart felt belief? >> look, i come from gun hunting, we had the first day of gun hunting off. >> megyn: w

is hunting down innocent people, which could be them. you think of virginia tech, sandy hook and they are in close proximity. so they are likely to be hunted down in a classroom or bathroom and killed. so they are not aware at that time that this may be a personal altercation and it's going to be resolved. they have to think they may be close to death. >> sad story. all right. we're standing by for the news conference with the sheriff. we'll give the latest. tom fuentes, thank you. >>> other news we're following in washington, the ceremonies and festivities are over. president obama is getting ready to work on his second term agenda. many republicans are making it clear they see that as a liberal agenda. speaker john boehner, other house republican leaders are about to hold a news conference. you're looking at live pictures from up there. our chief national correspondent john king is here. are the gloves off? >> you can certainly say yes or you might even say that the gloves are still on in the sense that republicans are looking to see what signals the president would send as
on that. we had the big sandy relief bill, $60 billion of mostly pork barrel spending, republicans blinked on that. now we have the debt kraoerblgs it looks like the president will get his way on that at least for now. i've been in washington for a longtime, 25 years covering the debt deals and the budget deals. what is frustrating about this is that the only time i can recall over the last 25 years congress has had to get serious about cutting spending and reducing the deficit is when they are at the point of this debt ceiling, and the president says we don't want to use that any more as a kind of point of emphasis, and i think that is a mistake, because what it means is we're never going to get serious about the debt unless we use the debt ceiling as that point where we make a deal to reduce the spending. martha: very distressing. matt, steve, thank you very much, guys. we'll see where this goes. we'll see you soon. >> thanks. >> thank you, martha. bill: 13 minutes before the hour and just about everyone is watching their taxes go higher. why is a famous protkpwoefrl and a pretty good on
sandy, the superstorm, wait it hit new york new jersey that put it back on the map. it wasn't talked about by either candidate in the last round. i was totally thrilled, not just that, he spoke to every stripe in his rainbow coalition, historic statement with regard to lesbians, gays, the entire, new emerging majority. all of that i think is in jeopardy if we don't do anything about climate change. he can do a lot of things with executive orders, the existing coal plants could be made more clean with executive authority. also he should do a bilateral with the leadership of china. china's having a horrible environmental crisis, air quality's going down. an opportunity for both superpowers to sit down. the president's unleashed, unchained, willing to speak from his heart. you'll see a very different second term. >> anna, you're always unleashed and unchained, anna. you are never a wallflower about any of these things. talk about the tone here because fellow republicans not happy about it. they didn't think it was genuine reaching across the group. they called it, quote, a harshly ideol
